Around the World and Buck Again 2012 National Tour
Meet Buck – champion dog trialist returning home from a successful world tour. Stuck in quarantine with British bulldog Horatio, French poodle Fifi and the mysterious Dolores Del Mar from Mexico they swap stories of grand English manors, stylish Parisian quarters and Buck's love of the kiwi farm.
But Dolores has a secret New Zealand Customs mustn't find out. Will the overbearing Horatio spoil her plans? Will Fifi stop reminiscing about French cuisine long enough to notice? Buck smells a rat! But will he act on it?
Joyful and witty, this comic canine caper with oodles of international intrigue from one of our best-selling authors, Jenny Pattrick.

Capital E provides a curriculum-linked resource packed with activities and lesson ideas recommended by teachers for both before and after your theatre experience.
This play is especially relevant to the New Zealand Curriculum’s Values and Key Competencies and the learning areas of Arts, Social Studies and Health & Physical Education and English with strong links to Te Whāriki.
This play is a great jumping off point for thinking about other cultures and how they compare to Buck’s experiences. Why not take a virtual triparound the world, stopping off to explore the culture, cuisine and customs of our four characters? Our resource is full of ideas.
